After Effects templates are such a great way to spice up practically any project. They can be used as movie trailers, slide shows, intros, special effects and more. The only problem is that these easy to use templates typically cost hundreds of dollars and are out of reach for the average user. Not anymore! A new website just launched called Free AE Templates, and it will finally put these much needed resources in everyone’s hands!

All About Free AE Templates

The name really says it all with this website. When you head over to, you’ll see that they already have a library of 30 clips that you can download. There are 20 After Effects templates and 10 lower third graphics just waiting to become part of your library. To get them, all you need to do is register for a free account. Just enter your email address or login with your Facebook and you’re automatically eligible to download as many clips as you want, as often as you want! Once the site really gets rolling, new clips will be added three times a week to ensure that there’s always a reason to come back!

Here’s a look at what you’ll find on the site’s homepage:

And here is a sample of one of the clips available for download. As  you’ll notice, these are pretty high quality clips, especially considering they’re free!

The one thing you should be warned about with this is that YOU MUST HAVE AFTER EFFECTS to use these files. If you don’t have that program, these will be almost worthless to you. If you don’t currently have After Effects, now may be the time to get it! You don’t want to miss out on these awesome media resources.
